Transcript for Caitlyn Jenner reflects on transitioning to a woman: Part 1

Two years ago, this is where it began. Bruce Jenner, athlete, famous dad on a reality show, waiting to stun the world by announcing inside he’d always been a woman. He greeted me at the door, 6’2″ tall, welcoming and anxious. We’d never met before. How are you doing, baby? It’s going to be an emotional roller coaster, but somehow I’m going to get through it. Reporter: And when we sat down for the interview — It’s been really tough. But here I am, I’m still here. That’s the good news. Reporter: So Bruce Jenner is — through tears, telling about the secrecy and confusion that had locked him into a kind of fortress his whole life. At a symbolic moment — We’re talking about all this stuff — Reporter: The ponytail came free. Are you a woman? Yes. For all intents and purposes. I am a woman. And that’s very hard for Bruce Jenner to say, because why? I don’t want to disappoint people. Bruce lives a lie — she is not a lie. I can’t do it anymore. Reporter: In that moment, the anguished, uncertain man we knew as Bruce said farewell. And two years later, as we pull up to a door at a house in malibu, someone very different comes out to say hello. Welcome. Reporter: Remember me? I do. Two years.

Reporter: Do you ever have doubt that you did the right thing? Never. Never had a doubt. I did the right thing. Reporter: Do you miss being Bruce? No, not at all. Not — not even, not even close. Not even close. Reporter: She says in the old days Bruce would look in a mirror and feel the anxiety of a body in a kind of duel with what was true inside. And when you look in the mirror now, you get up in the morning and look in the mirror? I’m excited about the day. For so many years I isolated myself. I wasn’t — I couldn’t care less about the next day. Now I do. Reporter: What have you learned about being a woman that you didn’t know before these last two years? I think I’ve learned a lot about compassion. Caitlyn, have a great day. Same to you! Bye-bye. Reporter: She’d always said her dream was an ordinary day, an uneventful hello. I kind of come around the corner. And this guy goes walking by. And he just goes, “Morning, ma’am.” “Morning,” kept walking. And I just go, “How wonderful is that?” It’s so simple. All right, we’re going with the macaroni salad. Big one. And I’ll go with the potato salad. How are you today? Reporter: You can see her two times a week at the supermarket, turning strangers…
